Community Health Worker Training

Pharmacy Technicians trained as Community Health Workers improve health outcomes, reduce overall healthcare costs, and expand pharmacy-based services.

CEimpact is the #1 trusted resource for pharmacy based Community Health Worker training.

Health inequity is the largest driver of poor health outcomes.

Disparities drive up healthcare costs and negatively impact every community.

Driven by social determinants of health (SDoH) – the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, and where we live and are educated – health equity is the number one priority in health care.

If left unaddressed, health inequity will become a $1 trillion problem by 2040. 

Who Pays the Price of Complacency?

Everyone.

Patients, communities, pharmacists, providers, health systems, insurance companies, and other payers. It is EVERYONE’s problem.

Community pharmacies are an anchor in their communities and powerful allies to improve health equity and reduce healthcare spend. 

They are accessible, trusted resources for patients, and staffed with community experts. Community pharmacies are uniquely positioned to identify and address issues negatively impacting their patients that lead to health inequities.

At CEimpact, we understand the challenges that health inequities present for patients and health care.

We know that community pharmacies are a solution.

Our goal is to equip every pharmacy with a Community Health Worker.

Together, we can:

Improve health outcomes for patients
Strengthen our communities
Support pharmacies in delivering critical services
Alleviate the burden of healthcare costs on society

Real Technicians. Real Reviews.

"I am the Remote Patient Monitoring Program Manager for our clinics and pharmacies. I had a patient whose blood sugar was staying abnormally low. After seeing this trend and speaking to the patient she opened up to me that she did not have any food in her home. I was able to coordinate a food resources for her. She has been stable since.​"

Amy Martin Primary Plus - Vanceburg, KY

"What an amazing experience to discover all the countless resources in my community!!!​

I am so grateful to have gone through the training and reach out and connect with so many organizations that I can refer patients to. It's changed the way I think, communicate, and interact with our patients."

Abigail Hoefling​ Hesston Pharmacy - Newton, KS

"I learned a lot in regard to how to identify different SDOH while having a conversation with patients, asking questions to help me identify what types of additional resources they might need, and then being able to provide that contact and help them navigate filling out forms, etc. to get additional assistance." ​

Jennifer Powell Gibbs Pharmacy - Lebanon, TN

"My pharmacy sits on the border of two very different counties with very different resources. It's been an enlightening experience to observe the differences in resources available to patients from both counties. Being able to provide direction for patients needing support - everything from a safe place to sleep to local food pantries and where to access free rental computers and internet - means that in my role as a technician, I'll be able to provide better care to members of my community.​"

Presley Sandoval Duvall Family Drug - Duvall, WA

"In taking this course, I have been given a golden opportunity to network resources within my community. I am now confident that I can quickly assess and address my patients' needs and get them the help they need. This [could include] helping them to find a new job, necessary mediation over a dispute, a place to wash their clothes, or even a meal for the night. I look forward to sharing my knowledge within my pharmacy and throughout our community.​"

Rachel Dalsky​ Hart Pharmacy - Cincinnati, OH

"During my service-learning experience, I have made connections with all sorts of agencies, joined a local prevention coalition, and made many new friends along the way. I have learned that there is a great need in my community - BUT, there is also an abundance of people, programs, and organizations available to help with social determinants [of health]. Now that I have this knowledge, I feel blessed to be a liaison between my patients and the help they may need to live their healthiest lives.​"

Stacey Hayes Young Pharmacy - Crossville, TN
